Valentine's Day Dinner party (4 pics)

We were invited to a Valentine's Day dinner party for 3 couples, and since I have been bragging about my Big Green Egg, I was unanimously selected to bring the meat. Furthermore, I was told to bring tenderloin.

So, I decided to bring two loins, a beef tenderloin and a stuffed pork tenderloin. The BGE didn't let me down, and they were well received.

    Great job, looking good. How did you do them and how did you open them up just sliced them?


    Thanks

    Gary great looking plate. You have some wonderful creations. ;) Tim
  • Looks great. What did you use in the filling? How do you cut the tenderloin like that?
  • Thanks Julie. I was nervous beforehand, because I hadn't cut into it, but it turned out OK. :)

  • Hi Patti,

    I just followed the instructions from the website below. When I took the loin out of it's wrap, I realized it was in 2 pieces, so I butterflied them both and put them next to each other.

  • Thanks, Beli. They had requested beef tenderloin, but I really wanted to try the stuffed pork, so I did them both.

  • Thanks golffer. See post below for the link to the stuffed pork.

    For the beef, I put worcestershire sauce on it, then McCormick's Montreal Spice like Dr. BBQ did on his Christmas Prime rib.

    I cooked both the beef and pork indirect at 350° for about an hour to an I.T. of 135°, then foiled, towel, and cooler for about another hour and a half. I figure they rose to an IT of about 145°.

  • :woohoo: good job! Bet they didn't expect 2 types of tenderloin! Of course, now they will expect you to top that meal :evil:
  • reelgemreelgem Posts: 4,256
    Nice job on those Gary. I bet they loved them.
  • I think I've figured it out. They brag on my food and insist I bring the meat. So, I had to buy the tenderloins. The beef one cost $68. They're not dumb. :laugh:

  • :whistle: yea, you finally figured it out :woohoo:
    bet you would do it again, though B)
  • What did you stuff them with? Nice cooks.

    Mike
  • Thanks Mike. The stuffing is primarily dried apples and cranberries. It also has apple cider, vinegar, brown sugar, ginger, and allspice.
